Bring on the cake, we really want to live

Said Maira Kalman in her wonderful book Cake, and I take those words very seriously. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time you will know that’s all I ever think about and sometimes do things

Here’s a drawing of morotskaka that the brown boy has loved ever since Malmö and we are made to eat it often.

This wishful drawing is from my birthday two years ago – when I was more concerned about growing older than I am now.

“The wonderful thing about cake is it really is connected to so many moments, not just celebratory moments, but moments of heartache.”

Maira Kalman

and last year I discovered this wonderful concoction.

So what’s your favorite? Or can you even have favorites?

    The only heartache around a cake is for the baker if he has messed something up. Otherwise the cake is unbridled jollity.
